The third and final testnet before Ethereum's highly anticipated move from an energy-intensive proof-of-work mechanism to a proof-of-stake mechanism has been completed. Anticipation of a successful Merge, stoked by better-than-expected U.S. inflation data, is lifting cryptocurrency prices up and down the market cap scale. At the top of today’s Real Vision Crypto Daily Briefing, Marco Olivera and Ash Bennington talk about what the Merge means for the second-largest cryptocurrency as well as for the industry as a whole. Marco and Ash also discuss developments concerning bankrupt crypto lender Celsius and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sending investigative subpoenas to Coinbase. In today’s feature segment, Marco and Ash break down and analyze an interview with Jay Janer, the head of quantitative investing at KPTL, a crypto hedge fund that managed to profit from Terra’s crash.
